Rishabh Pant is the most trolled cricketer on social media. From weight issues to his batting, fans target him daily.
His failure with the bat in the recently concluded T20I series between India and New Zealand was highlighted by his critics.
Many feel Sanju Samson is the most deserving candidate, and the southpaw is getting needless extension by the team management.
In the first ODI against the Kane Williamson-led team, he again gave away an easy chance to silence his haters.
Lockie Ferguson dismissed him on a score off 15 off 23 balls. Former India player Aakash Chopra spoke about the hate Pant is getting on Twitter.
“The amount of hate Rishabh Pant gets on this platform is unreal,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, India scored 306/7 in 50 overs, with Shreyas Iyer scoring 80 off 76 balls. Shikhar Dhawan (72), Shubman Gill (50), Washington Sundar (37 not out) and Sanju Samson (36) also made useful contributions.
